Here are your Dance Song of the Year nominees for the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards:
"Hey Mama" - David Guetta featuring Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha & Afrojack
Even though David Guetta was four singles deep into 2015's Listen, this guest-heavy dance anthem reminded listeners just how good Nicki Minaj (and Bebe Rexha) sound over the French DJ's beats with some assistance from Afrojack. Just take a look at the song's peak position on Billboard's Hot 100. It reached the no. 8 spot. Plus, the video nabbed over 624 million views. The word impressive is an understatement.
"Lean On" - Major Lazer & DJ Snake featuring MØ
While MØ deserves all the credit in the world for her vocal contribution to this song, the appeal of "Lean On" results mainly in its production. After being declined by the likes of Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, "Lean On" went on to become just another slice of the weird pop pie that Diplo had in mind all along.
"Waves" - Mr. Probz
Mr. Probz's "Waves" may have been released back in April of 2013, but the Robin Schulz remix of the tune elevated it to new heights in February of 2014, and landed the single atop the charts in a ton of countries. As for the States, the remix of "Waves" peaked at the no. 14 spot on the Hot 100.
"Where Are Ü Now" - Skrillex & Diplo with Justin Bieber
Who knew that Justin Bieber's comeback would accidentally begin ahead of time with his Jack Ü collaboration? Shortly before the launch of one of the most meticulous (and effective) comebacks in recent years, Justin's earnest dance anthem became one of 2015's biggest hits and hit the no. 8 spot on the Hot 100.
"You Know You Like It" - DJ Snake & AlunaGeorge
DJ Snake makes another appearance in the same category for providing AlunaGeorge with a remix of her slinky dance tune, "You Know You Like It." Unlike JB's comeback tune, for example, this rendition of the song became a "sleeper hit" for Stateside audiences and peaked at the no. 13 position on the Hot 100.
